While our rainfall is low this year, there have been enough showers to keep the moss green and the orchids emerging. While I am out photographing Helmet Orchids, Nodding Greenhoods, Blunt Greenhoods and other tiny plants, I am repeatedly struck by the beauty of some of the moss we have growing here. It’s deep and lush to the extent that some of the Helmet Orchid flowers are almost engulfed by it. In the photograph featured above, my eye is drawn more to the moss than the Greenhood. I don’t know much about moss, so the photographs that follow don’t include species names. I just think they are beautiful.
